Apple said it will issue a software update that would address customer complaints about the latest iPhone 15 models running hot. Apple said this was because of a combination of bugs in iOS 17, bugs in apps, and a temporary set-up period. An Apple spokesperson told CNBC: “We have identified a few conditions which can cause iPhone to run warmer than expected. The device may feel warmer during the first few days after setting up or restoring the device because of increased background activity. We have also found a bug in iOS 17 that is impacting some users.” CNBC
